“India Leader Arrives in New York”

  • Full, front-page article on Mme. Pandit’s arrival on December 8
  • Quotes extensively from a December 10 press conference held by Mme. Pandit in New York.
  • Pandit believed that “thousands of American lives would be saved” if the Indian political situation were resolved, because, Pandit argued, Indian soldiers could not be fully committed to a government that did not consist of Indians and therefore did not fight to their fullest capacity against the Japanese in Burma.
